"There are leaders who engage naturally with people, and leaders who are simply uncomfortable with engagement at a human level. The former have an advantage over the latter, clearly. Engaged leaders work with employees; those who shun engagement have employees who work for them, not necessarily with them. It’s a distinction with a difference..."

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age | education | Scoop.it

Is the one-size-fits-all, top-down classroom a misfit for the Digital Age? 

 

Standards-based education is ruining the way educators teach and children learn. Education should not be about teaching to the next level in education and vocation and yet, that is exactly what our current school system is designed to do.

 

Our goal should be to foster a love of learning for learning sake. Learning is not something that we should force onto our children to ensure they go to college and get a good job. True learning is intrinsically motivated and the reward is knowledge.

I also think there is no limit to using technology in the classroom. I think every student learns differently and integrating technology in the classroom can help students find new means of studying that works well for them. I agree that teaching students to test them all the the same level is not the way to go about it. I think that it is "destroying our youth" and causing them to be high anxiety.

Owning the experience of discovery, especially as it pertains to learning about a situation or topic, results in a deeper understanding of the situation. 

Nick Sigrist's curator insight, May 12, 2014 9:19 AM

Leaning towards the digital age is very important for education, because students have recently begun to center their lives around such devices like iPads, computers, and phones. This article explains the slow advances towards the use of computers and other devices that not only make our lives easier through communication, but can also do so very well through education.

Vary the ways you present information/how students learn, vary the ways they can express themselves, and provide meaningful ways to engage students in their learning.

How will the craft of storytelling change in the future? | education | Scoop.it

"The question was posted on Quora, inviting a wealth of answers. Here's mine (invited to vote up if you think it's worth being more visible): The simple answer is - it won't, since it has no reason to. The only change required is having more outstanding storytellers than there are right now."

Great point Gregg and thanks for sharing this fascinating discussion on Quora.


Readers, I agree with Gregg. The craft of storytelling really won't change significantly as time goes on. What's needed are folks willing to take the time to master the craft.

Lauren Scime's curator insight, February 22, 2014 8:35 PM

It's not the storytelling craft that changes, it's the technology we build it on and the media we tell stories across that changes as our world and our toolsets change.
